About the FHS
The FHS consists of a set of requirements and
guidelines for file and directory placement under UNIX-like
operating systems. The guidelines are intended to support
interoperability of applications, system administration tools,
development tools, and scripts as well as greater uniformity of
documentation for these systems. The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
is an affiliated project of the Free Standards Group and is part of
the Linux Standard Base.
